mmm The Owl 2002-2003 Memphis University School Memphis, Tennessee Volume XLVU The Owl 1 Opening 'Doors 1893-2003 °" l'- iV Memphis University School ^y± s the school's ever-expanding public relations department says, "For more than a hundred years at Memphis University School, the doors have been open for students interested in becoming well-rounded young men." Even though to people who are not a part of this school, this slogan seems like just another advertising gimmick, to the students this aphorism rings true. We know how well our education here prepares us for the future. MUS promises the best education in the city of Memphis, if not the entire region. Students choose from almost 20 A.P. courses that give them credits for college, and our college guidance department places almost all students in one of their top choices. And this preparation is not just academic. From the training future journalists experience with the Owl's Hoot to the preparation for law our Mock Trial team receives, MUS students constantly have new doors opened for them. MUS graduates always point out how their attending this school has opened doors for them. The MUS experience provides lasting friendships and lifelong memories which all students are grateful for. The doors that are opened everyday at Memphis University School are what we on the yearbook staff hope you will remember as you flip through this year's Owl.

When his father died nine months after his birth, young Kemmons moved to Memphis and was raised by his mother. Despite dropping out of high school, Mr. Wilson succeeded in business through his legendary work ethic, rising from selling popcorn in a local theater to owning a Homebuilding business. In 1952 he founded the Holiday Inn hotel franchise, forever changing the face of travel. Mr. Wilson will be remembered by MUS students for his remarkable philanthropy and his interesting and informative chapel speeches. He has left a legacy at the school in the form of the Kemmons Wilson Leadership Center, where future students will go to meet with Guidance Counselors. Above and Left: Kemmons Wilson's final gift was a School of Hospital and Resort Management for the University of Memphis; the school opened in April with an 82-suite Holiday Inn.

CHICAGO Far Right: Cody Jameson, in drag as Mary Sunshine , entertained audi- ences with this number, "A Little bit of Good." Right: Billy, played by Justin Willingham, is surrounded, as always, by a crowd of girls. The choice for this summer's show was not just your typical MUS production. Matt Kidd, the director an a recent alumnus, wanted to push the envelope at MUS a try a musical with more adult subject matter, that dealt wit racier situations, and had an element of comedy in it, so h selected Chicago, a musical about adultery, murder, and betrayal in 1920's Chicago. White Station graduate Morgan Scott took on the lead role of Roxie Hart. Last seen at MUS as the title character in Evita, Morgan wowed audiences with her portrayal of the sinful girl. Houston Hagewood played Fred Casely, Roxie' s adulterous lover. Amos Hart, Roxie loser of a husband, was played by recent graduate Adam Del Conte. Tarn Riggs, daughter of MUS's own Dr. Bae wonderfully portrayed Roxie Hart's rival in crime, Velma Kelly. The barely affordable and highly self-righteous lawyer, Billy Flynn, was played by MUS alumnus Justin Willingham. The Matron Mama Morton (Sally Kroeker) i also met up with as the play progresses as well as an important leader in news media, Mary Sunshine (recent alumnus Cody Jameson). Adam Del Conte cleverly steak the show in the second act with his self-pitying "Mr. Cellophane". Also featured were Courtney Bras well (Cordova High School), Christen Gilmore, Katie Praschei Rebecca Baer (another daughter of Dr. Baer), Chloe Lack (SMS Senior), Stephanie Vieron, Kevin Murphy, Philip 12 Memphis University School , Hughen, Kenny Hickman (MUS alumnus), Zack Stacey, and Matt Kidd. A major part of the production of Chicago was, its choreography, so Courtney Oliver, a esident company member of Playhouse on the Square was hired, as was a band with Michael Meeks as the leader and musical director. The combination of complex choreography and show stopping tunes called for long hours of summer rehearsals leading up to two weekends of shows. With costumes created by Mr. Eikner, under the technical direction of Mr. Saunders, and under the stage- managing of recent graduate Christian Schmitt, the show was ready to open. With six weekend performances and one "pay what you can performance", the cast of Chicago "Razzle Dazzled" audiences. Chicago was said by some to have had some of the best talent on the MUS stage seen at one time. The six merry murderesses of the Cook County Jail (L to R: Courtney Braswell, Katie Prascher, Tarn Riggs, Rebecca Baer, Christen Gilmore, and Chloe Lackie) perform the "Cell Block Tango."

These two performances had audiences riveted nightly as the two faced off in the confines of a Mental Hospital Ward.

When describing Fall Fest the words miserable and disastrous aren't usually heard; this year it was hard not to hear them. Despite Weir's constant chal- lenging of God to stop the rain from ruining his precious baby, the weather dampened the mood for the first time in six years. However, the return of mud wrestling, a long-standing Fall Fest tradition, brought smiles to the faces of all in attendance. «• Above: Those stylish sunglasses provide protection from the rain as well as the sun.

This year's football season started with high expectations and aspirations with the Commercial Appeal's predicting a visit to the Clinic Bowl. The season started out slowly with the first game against Melrose at the Liberty Bowl being postponed because of inclement weather. That game was a tough game that the team believed they should not have lost. The next two games against Jackson Prep and Harding were complete victories for the good guys. The Jackson Prep game started out with an exciting 78-yard touchdown run by Derek Clenin. After three more touchdown runs by Clenin and a touchdown pass to Hazlehurst the game turned into a rout. After a tough loss to the continual thorn in our side, Brentwood and an embarrassing loss to the Saints of Briarcrest the team re- vamped their effort to make it to the State Championship. Two of the next three games were shutouts in which the team scored more than 25 points. The other game was a sound beating of Montgomery Bell at their homecoming. After a dominating win over McCallie the team faced a talented Purple Wave team. In the most exciting game of the year a game that seemed over early ended up being decided by an amazing blocked kick by Clenin. With a bye in the first round of the playoffs and the second seat in the division we were in one of the best positions possible. In what was to be the final game of the season against a team we had already beaten, MBA, the Owls fought hard until the end, but they fell a touchdown short of the Clinic Bowl. Next year's Owls, unlike the last two years, will not have most of the starters returning, leaving a void to be filled by future stars of MUS football. Above: Derek Clenin, 'nuff said.

The Owl 35 Right: Will Owens admires his long, beautiful drive. MUS golf has a long tradition of excellence, both in regional and state competition. This year was no anomaly, as the eleven-man squad again showed a fine performance, representing MUS. to the finest degree. The owls were led by coach Ronnie Wenzler , who has coached the Owls on a voluntary basis since 1995. The Owls were again unde- feated at the local level, achieving a perfect record of 9-0. Led by seniors Alex Debardeleben and Michael Murphy, both four-year lettermen, and by junior Scott Tashie, the team was destined for success. However, the 2002 team also found leadership in two fresh- men, Bobby Hudson and Alex Snyder, who each represented us well at the state tournament. Other team members included Watt Efird, Clay Chapman, Richard White, Matt Ganier, Will Owens, and Scott Wan-en. After a solid third-place finish at the regional tournament at Orgill Park, the Owls journeyed to Savannah, Tennessee for the Division II State Tournament. The Owls got off to an excellent start, with 75 's from both Alex Debardeleben and Scott Tashie. Coming into day two, the owls were tied for first with Chattanooga Golf Baylor, last year's champions. Sadly, on day two, even though the Owls were consistent and played well, they failed to shoot low enough to secure their first title since 1996. Hudson led the team on day two, carving out a 76, with Tashie' s 77 and Murphy's 78 securing our third-place finish behind Baylor and champion McCallie. Despite the owl's failure to secure a state championship, the future looks bright for the team. The leadership of Scott Tashie, coupled with the talent of current freshmen and sophomores are sure to give the Owls the opportunity for a state championship in the coming golf season. The future looks bright for this talented group.

The Owl 3" Cross Country The MUS Cross Country team, led by Coach Tyler and seniors William Adams, Marshall Goldsmith Will Hunt Collins Roll, and Brad Whiteside, had one of its strongest seasons this year. The Harriers finished first in the region and grabbed a strong third-place finish in the state tournament. ' Coach Tyler started the season early this year, beginning with grueling practices in which the team ran an average of 10 miles a day. All this hard work paid off on August 27 when the team placed well in the Shelby County Cross Country Jamboree. A week later the team participated in its first Shelby County League Meet at Shelby Farms in which they placed third. MUS was merely resting, however, because the next week they faced their first big challenge at the Chickasaw Trails Invitational in Alabama. In a huge boost to the team's confidence, they surprised their opponents and placed first. Encouraged by this victory, MUS returned home and finished third in the League Meet on September 17 The next big meet was in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Great American Invitational. Against tough competition the Owls posted an impressive fourth-place finish. Moving into October, MUS began to train harder in preparation for the tournaments at the end of the season. Their hard work was apparent on October 15, when the team placed third in the county championships. Collins Roll was the highest finisher for MUS, placing second.

The Buzzards made it to the quarterfinals of the regional tournament before being stopped by Bishop Byrne. Coach Peters and the team started to prepare for the season early this year, beginning with a grueling Phy-D schedule of long distance running and drills. The Owls pre-season effort paid off when they won seven of their first eight games, including impressive wins over Mississippi powerhouse Jackson Academy and Division 2 rival Montgomery Bell. The team's first real test occurred at the prestigious Carbondale Tournament in Illinois during winter break. They placed an impressive third place amidst the tough competition, and returned home to prepare for the remainder of the season. Encouraged by their performance, MUS returned home to| face the Lausanne Lynx. After a tough game, the team fell victim to Lausanne's big-name talent. The Owls struggled through the next ten games of their season. They won only four, but they did score victories over regional rivalsBriarcrest and Christian Brothers.

On February 7, the Owls played their homecoming game against Harding. Avenging an earlier loss to the Lions, the Owls put forth one of their best efforts of the season and won a clutch two-overtime game, 66-62. The Owls split their final four games of the season two and two, and began to focus on doing well in the State Tournament. The hard work paid off on February 22 when the team demolished Catholic in the first round of the Regional tournament, The Owls next opponent was the Scarlet Knights of Bishop Byrne. Although they fought hard, the Owls lost 43-55. By the end of the season the Owls had amassed an impressive 17-12 record. Although they did not go as far as they hoped to in the playoffs, there were many highlights this season. The Owls defeated the Purple Wave twice during the season. Ryan Baum, who led the team in scoring with 16.5 points per game, was a selection for the All-Metro Best of Preps team, while Derek Clenin proved to be an excellent point guard, averaging an outstanding two-to-one assist-to-turnover ratio during the year. The future continues to look promising for the Owls as returning underclassmen Philip Reed, Blake Weidman, Chris Cole, Lee Hoyle, John Conrad McCrary, and Marcus Moss build a strong base for next year's team.

New coach Sean Genres added upon assistant coach Burton Milnor's experience. Their job was made easier by the return of five experienced seniors Geer Alexander, Matt Cohen, Charlie Gordon, Alan Humphreys, and the previous year's captain Blake Lindsay. Their leadership combined with eight returning underclassmen starters to form one of the strongest lineups MUS has seen. The season began with an impressive win over regional foe St. Benedict 66-15. This began a series of blowouts over White Station, McNairy County, and rival Briarcrest before the team placed ninth in the prestigious Blackhorse Invitational. The team then decimated Munford before a short break before Christmas Break. During the "Holiday" the team spent countless hours in the two-year old wrestling room preparing for the second half of the long season.

Continuing their domination, the Varsity Owls shellacked Memphis Catholic School while the freshman Owls showed the future of MUS wrestling with Garrett McClintock taking first and Mason George taking second in their respective weight classes. Winning a key dual meet against Division II contender Harding secured the Owls' number two seed in the Western Region. During the Bolton tournament, many individuals gained invaluable experience going into the team's biggest date, January 25 th , the Regional Tournament. Hoping to make it to the State Duals for the third year in a row Coach Tommy Harrison was proud of the second place finish by the team, which stifled the efforts of Briarcrest and Harding before losing a disappointing match to CBHS. The next weekend after defeating Millington 60-16, the Owls traveled to Clarksville for the State Dual tournament. The team was defeated by both Brentwood Academy and state runner-up Father Ryan. The Owls had a strong showing improving on the previous year's performance by winning several matches. Two weeks later the team traveled to Chattanooga for the State individual tournament. Senior Blake Lindsay took third place in the state, while junior Andrew Hooser finished fifth, and sophomore Nelson Rainey took a disappointing sixth-place finish, with high hopes for next season.

A football or basketball game would seem completely devoid of MUS Spirit without the stirring, ardent chants of the cheerleaders. Braving the bitter cold of winter football games while wearing little more than their brand-new short skirt and halter-top uniform, these girls faithfully cheered on our team to a commendable seven victories this season. These young ladies began practice in April in an effort to provide quality cheering, and practice continued throughout the summer. Not only do they provide top-notch cheering for our fans, but they also manage to perform risky stunts intended to galvanize the crowd. Every Thursday afternoon, the girls decorate the football locker room and provide a feast of various homemade and store-bought cakes and cookies, a gesture which is the highlight of the week for many football players. Every now and then, the cheerleaders also put on a fundraising pizza sale for the student body. The Basketball cheerleaders stood alongside the team for its seventeen victories, two of which included CBHS poundings. While providing many of the same services to the school as the Football Cheerleaders, these girls lovingly cheer on the Basketball Team and lead the legendary MUS spirit that seems to place MUS a cut above the rest. Their dedication throughout the year is much appreciated, not only by the team, but also by the student body as a whole. In addition to the normal rigors of general cheerleading, the MUS Cheerleaders are an integral part of the famous Pep Rallies. From helping Mr. Haguewood and Mr. Matthews lead the student body in the traditional "15 Snappy Rahs" and the "Fight Song" to announcing the ever-controversial "Roll Calls", the cheerleaders prepare the school for a big win at the evening's homecoming game. These talented young ladies are an important part of MUS. Thanks to their efforts, spirit is high throughout the year, providing a key element in the tradition of athletic excellence.

The Owl ■o HYD 56 Memphis University School ORGANIZATIONS The Owl 57 Language Clubs Complementing MUS's outstanding language department are the Language Clubs. Though not widely recognized as clubs in the MUS community, the three language clubs provide some interaction between students of different grades taking the same language. The Latin Club is the most active of the Language Clubs. Annually, the Latin Club attends the Tennessee Junior Classical League Convention, in which MUS ' s finest Latin scholars participate in a variety of activities with students from other schools. These activities include Certamen (a Latin and Greek trivia competition), academic testing competitions, and a number of athletic events modeled on those of ancient times. The Spanish Club, despite recent attempts to revive it, does not participate in many activities, besides the occasional Spanish Club dinner at Taco Bell. The French Club, likewise, does not have many activities, but its members have been known to go to La Baguette and hold French-speaking contests, even for those students studying Latin or Spanish. Mr. Wayne Duff is the faculty advisor for the Latin Club, Mrs. Molly Bun- is the faculty advisor for the Spanish Club, and Dr. Reginald Dalle is the faculty advisor for the French Club. iRr.M.tin.iH VW\ J0»S TOl-K.N Uti H 1 SiCNUP ^msS^Vgmst ,.SjS&3fflKL; Above: French Club Co-Presidents Lee McNabb and Faris Haykal enjoy Dr. Dalles French artifacts. 58 Memphis University School Above: Fyler Fisher and Sunny Majumdar enjoy the classical feast of Corky s Barbecue.

The majority of the noise comes from the diligent staff of the Owl '$ Hoot, our school newspaper. The Hoot, as it is affectionately known, comes out almost monthly. The papers have over 15 pages of exciting and enthralling material, including surveys, crossword puzzles, and controversial editorials. All of this is possible because of the hard work of the editors and staff, and the diligent advising of Mr. Norman Thompson. This year's co-editors-in-chief were Faris Haykal and J.K. Minervini. Stressing that the paper was going in an entirely new direction this year, these two pioneered the Saturday -morning meeting system, which entails newspaper meetings three Saturdays a month to ensure the quality and the on-time arrival of all the paper's editions. The editors themselves put in many extra hours of service, industriously laying out and editing the paper. Students and faculty were very pleased with the result, and they praised this year's paper as the best they have seen in years. They commended the excellent writing and photography, as well as the thought-provoking content. The Owl's Hoot editorial section approached many important issues this year, such as affirmative action, the Iraqi conflict, and possible sexism at MUS, all of which aroused debate throughout the student body. Taken in retrospect, this year's school newspaper was both informative and entertaining, a delight to both readers and staff. xjj* Above: The whole newspaper staff.

The Ow 61 The Owl Every year the MUS yearbook staff faces many questions and challenges: Will there be good pictures this year? Are the proofs going to get to the publisher in time? Where is that Cross Country copy? And (most importantly) where in the heck is last year's yearbook? Despite all this adversity, this year's editors have worked hard to produce a quality yearbook that students can look at and be proud of. This mammoth 190-page Owl you are now reading is the product of hundreds of hours of work on Saturday mornings. For the first time in recent memory, most of the work for this year's book was actually done on time, and not in a furious tornado of activity beginning halfway through February and ending mid-summer. The 2002-2003 staff came together and, under the leadership of editor-in-chief Conor Quinn, has produced an excellent record of the school year, a historical account and a source of nostalgia for years to come.

The MUSe literary magazine serves as our school's artistic lifeline, protecting us from the ravaging philistine hordes of cultural mediocrity. This year, the MUSe went under a few large changes. For years the staff had been divided into waning factions with the "poet-boyz" under the poetry edito warring against the prose editor and his "proseys"; while the editor-in-chief desperately tried to maintain the order in this war- torn world of pretty pictures and pastel art. This feudalistic style of editorship slowed down productivity and made a well-balanced MUSe difficult. This year, in a literary coup, editor-in-chief Michael Morisy revolted against the ruling dogma that has oppressed the MUSe and it's staff for generations. Breaking down the walls of the artistic conflict and diversity, Morisy changed the entire concept of "section editor," giving each editor his own little section of the MUSe to layout. Friendship flowed as all editors were allowed to dip into all forms of art and to share all works, by all contributors, equally; with Morisy himself, guiding them and guarding them from above. With a vigor and determination unseen by the publication in years the MUSe editors and staff gathered their creative energies and hurled themselves into battle, forging what looks to be one of the finest MUSe's in recent history. Already eclipsing last years MUSe at a whopping ■".'■' _ ; ;mM , eighty pages of full sized print, this MUSe seems to finally have regained the power and glory that its forefathers possessed. J While the 2003 MUSe is a mighty juggernaut of poetry it also maintains a lighter more carefree attitude that has been :Z lacking from previous incarnations of the publication.

The Owl 65 &fonor Council The Honor System has been a tradition at MUS since its founding in 1 893 and is inter- preted and governed by the Honor Council, which acts as an impartial court in hearing the cases that come before it. The system encourages mutual trust and confidence among student; and their teachers. The Council may make recommendations concerning any action to be take against violators of the system, but the administration has the final decision regarding those recommendations. To maintain such a system, it is the responsibility of every student to be honorable himself, both in word and deed, and to report any person violating the Honor Code This responsibility, taken by the students, is what makes the Honor System thrive. President Marshall Goldsmith, Vice President Andy Garrett, Secretary Andrew Hanover and Grade Representatives Edward Taylor, Gordon Conaway, Spencer Heflin, Weller Drennor Hunter Adams, and Phillip Flinn served on this year's Honor Council. Mr. Thompson served as faculty advisor. Marshall did an excellent job as President of the 2002-2003 Honor Coun- cil, and he will be remembered as one of the best Presidents in recent memory. "For in short, the spirit of the Honor System is a way of life, and that way of life is the way of Honor." -Bernard Mayo, Prof., University of Virginia.

The Owl 67 Student Counci This year's Student Council once again was busy thinking of ways to entertain their peers. Under the leadership of President John Harkess, the Student Council succeeded in their goal and surpassed all expectations. The Student Council founded new traditions such as Field Day and Quiz Bowl, while also rejuvenating old traditions such as Fall Fest (with the return of mud wrestling and the car bash) and Mock Graduation, The Executive Committee performed their jobs to near perfection and supported President Harkess throughout the year, Vice-President William Adams managed all Pep Rallies and took over the President's duties in his absence. Commissioner of Social Events Tyler Wohrman beautifully orchestrated the dances and chose great bands for both Homecomings and Spring Formal. Commissioner of Special Activities Allen Humphreys provided weekly distractions for all students with his dodgeball games and eating contests, Secretary-Treasurer Brandon Arrindell took notes during all meetings and managed the pizza sales. Commissioner of Student Welfare Robert Snowden represented his peers on the Disciplinary Committee and consistently highlighted Monday chapels with his funny announcements.

This year's executive board was made up of president Andy Garrett, senior vice presidents Philip Blackett, John Harkess, Barlow Mann, Conor Quinn, Faris Haykal, and Babu Rayudu, and junior vice presidents Adam Kaplan and Paul Moinester. The club's purpose is to inform students about international and domestic issues and to debate those issues. It does so by offering club members participation in three activities: the YMCAModel United Above: The Costa Rica delegation (Stephen Kriger, Gordon Conaway, Lee Hoyle) won awards for Outstand- ing Research and Outstanding Resolu- tion at YMCA Model UN. Nations in Nashville, the Mid-South Model United Nations at Rhodes College, and the YMCA Youth Legislature in Nashville. The YMCA Model United Nations, held in downtown Nashville, is a simulation of the United Nations in New York. At this conference, most delegates choose a country to represent, write a position paper describing their country' s background and views on given topics, and finally write a resolution to be debated at the conference. Other delegates represent their countries in the Security Council, in the International Court of Justice, or serve on the International Press Corps. MUS had yet another successful year at the conference. Conference officers from MUS were President of the General Assembly Andy Garrett, Vice Presidents Paul Bunch, John Harkess, and Barlow Mann. Mid-South Model United Nations, sponsored by Rhodes College, takes a slightly different approach to simulating the real U.N. Delegates at this conference work individually to write position papers and draft resolutions, representing their countries' views on two specific global issues. At the conference, delegates work together to write a resolution pleasing to all nations. Rhodes Model UN is the least participated in activity of the Government Club, and this year's delegation was only three members. The YMCA Youth Legislature, held in the state capital building, instructs students in the democratic government in our country. Students write bills to deal with issues facing the state of Tennessee and debate them in the Red House, Red Senate, Blue House, and Blue Senate. The Red chambers are for experienced participants, while the Blue chambers serve as training ground for new representatives. Other components include the governor's cabinet, the lawyer component, lobbyist firms, and the press corps. Officers from MUS at this conference included Philip Blackett, Paul Moinester, Robert Rogers, Adam Kaplan, Conor Quinn, John Harkess, Dara Chan, and Brad Whiteside. 70 Memphis University School Far left: As Government Club advisor, Mr. Guy Amsler has maintained a tradition of excellence with multiple award-winners and office holders at the YMCA Model UN and Youth Legislature.

The Owl "1 Civic Service Service, as defined by the Community Creed, qualifies as one of the seven ideals governing student attitude and behavior. The Civic Service Organization, chaired by Ken Farmer and advised by Mr. Smythe, provided plenty of opportunities for students to give back to both community and school. Ken decided this year to get away from small, one-day projects, and, instead, focus on developing long-ter relationships with the city and performing more permanent projects. The Reading Bridge was open to students throughout tJ first semester, allowing students to read to kindergarteners at Martin Luther King Elementary School each week. In addition tutoring and basketball coaching at Kipp Academy on Saturdays was open to interested students, along with tutoring at Second Presbyterian Church on Thursdays. The Civic Service organization continued its relationship with Kipp Academy during a home football game by organizing pre-game activities and food for the children before allowing the children to observe the game from the student section. After the game, a dance was provided, with proceeds going to charity. Also new this year, the Civic Service Organization joined the Student Council in sponsorship of a quite successful Fall Fest. Additionally, students had the opportunity to volunteer at a run benefiting Polycystic Kidney Disease and donate books for those in need. Civic Service Charity Week proved to be very successful Three guest speakers prompted students to give blood, tutor, and visit the Civil Rights Museum downtown. The week culminated With the talent show, a popular annual eve hosted this year by Ken, Shahzad Khan, Mr. Smythe, and Mr. Olson. The show consisted of multiple bands, comedy sketci break dancing, musical solos, and an entertaining rap video. AD proceeds went to the Habitat for Humanity house that MUS and Hutchison students constructed in the spring. Vice-chairs this year included Shahzad Khan, Chase Carlisle, Farris Haykal, Philip Blackett, Andrew Hanover, and Edward Taylor. The hard work and innovative ideas of Ken and Mr. Smythe established new relationships within the city that will greatly benefit the future work of the Civic Service Organization.

The team benefited greatly from the leadership of Mrs. Elizabeth Crosby, Bailey Leopard, and MUS alumni Ralph Gibson and Jim Robinson. The Red Team, which consisted of more experienced members, included attorneys JK Minervini, Carie Balton, and Loren McRae, and witnesses William Adams, Barlow Mann, Leslie Montesi, Anna Burhop, Anne Marie Dudas, and Tyler Fisher. The Blue Team members were attorneys Alex Chinn, Trey Bowden, and Aaron Markowitz, along with witnesses Joy Agho, John KJinke, Katy Langston, Kyle Fong, Andrew Gordon, and William Brandon. The competition took place during the first week of Feburary. On the first night, the Red Team defeated Cordova as defense. Neither team played Tuesday evening. On night three, the Red Team was victorious once again, this time over St. Benedict as prosecution. That night, the Blue Team also defeated their opponent, Ridgeway, as prosecution. Unfortunately, both teams suffered losses on Thursday night. The Red Team was defense against a very good Houston team in a heated match. The Blue Team played against an eerily synchronized St. Mary's team. These losses brought an end to the teams' aspirations of state competition. The Red Team's Carie Balton and JK Minervini took turns winning best attorney. Alex Chinn was awarded best attorney for the Blue Team on both nights of competition. Best witnesses were Joy Agho for the prosecution and William Brandon for the defense. Special thanks to all coaches and the attorneys who watched scrimmages, Mr. Eikner, and team captains JK Minervini, Carie Balton, and William Adams. The eight senior team members will be greatly missed after this year; however, those who remain show great promise for next year.

Beg to Differ, Mils' s resident singing ensemble, had an extremely successful year. A nationally renowned male a cappella choir, the group performed surprisingly well for a group comprised of mostly underclassmen. Under the excellent guidance of music guru John Hiltonsmith, BTD performed all over the city, dazzling audiences with their unique repertoire. The troupe even attended an a cappella contest in Atlanta in which they did an outstanding job. This year's group is comprised of seniors Houston Hagewood, Jesse Huseth, Phillip Braun, William Adams, Phillip Blackett, and JK Minervini. juniors John McGreger, Blake Wiedman, and Drew McCarty, sophomores Charles Askew, Ben Bleustein, Clint Cowan, Will Hickman, Warner Russell, Mike Schaeffer, and Eric Wilson, and freshmen Adrian Doggrell, Walter Klyce, Taylor Maury, Ian Noble, and David Minervini. The group sang many different songs this year, including some Southern gospel, modern pop. Catholic hymns, the national anthem, and, as always, the MUS alma mater. They also brought back such old favorites as It 's All Right and The Lion Sleeps Tonight, and they also tried out some new arrangements, like Spiderman and Mary Did You Know. So impressive is this group that Mr. Hiltonsmith intends to release a new Christmas CD. featuring Houston Hagewood' s entertaining rendition of You re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. As always, the Beg to Differ group has spawned a number of quartets; this year two such were featured at the annual Christmas concert, one of seniors (Houston ■ Hagewood, Phillip Braun, Jesse Huseth, and JK Minervini) and one of freshmen and sophomores (Eric Wilson, Mike Schaeffer, Will Hickman, and Walter Klyce).

The Owl 79 ■'v- "-.".- - y '*y Mathematics Memphis University School has always touted its excellent academics, and the Math Department is one of the school's best examples of the school's quality. In order to gain a grasp on the "universal language," students are required to take at least five full years of math. Through the curriculum students learn both basic mathematic principles such as the Pythagorean Theorem as well as the more complicated concept of finding the slope of tangential lines through the use of limits. The students' journey through "Math Magicland" begins in seventh-grade Pre- Algebra under the tutelage of Mari Burke or Betty Williams. In eighth grade, students are divided into classes of either Algebra I taught by Mr. Bruce Ryan and Mrs. Burke or Algebra Essentials, which Mr. Joe Tyler teaches. The truly talented students begin their advanced courseworkin Mrs. Williams' Accelerated Algebra I class. As soon as students enter the Upper School they are subjected to the vagaries of triangles and the horrors of mathematical proofs in Geometry, taught by either Mrs. Diana Moore or Mr. Darin Clifft. Students willing to brave the truly terrible trauma can take Accelerated Geometry with Mr. Ryan or Mrs. Moore. In 10 th grade students must take Algebra II with Mrs. Susan Quinn, Mr. John Knaff, or Mr. Tom Brown. Students who want to learn how to be "bad to the bone" and how to impress girls with "the Math Dance" take Mr. Murphy' s Accelerated Algebra II. Now almost at the end of their mathematical careers, students may either take Function and Data Analysis with Mrs. Quinn, or venture onward into Pre-Calculus with Mr. Murphy or Mrs. Nancy Gates. Juniors with more inquisitive minds take Mr. Mike Gunn's Accelerated Pre-Calculus. Once 1 1 th grade is over, students can now take any one of three A.P. courses. Mr. Clifft offers A.R Statistics, while Mr. Murphy challenges his students in A.P. Calculus AB. For the "few good men" who have stuck with M.U.S.'s demanding accelerated track, Mrs. Gates' A.P. Calculus BC is the last lej of their "mathmagical" journey.

The Owl O 5 5 J H i sto ry Many would call the History Department the backbone of MUS, and those people would probably be right. Under the leadership of Department Chair Dr. John Harkins, an AP and regular European History teacher, the History Department allows students to learn about many different cultures, to examine trends throughout time around the world, and to see how economic, political, religious, geographical, and cultural factors affected world history. In the Lower School, 7* Graders begin their MUS history career with World Area Studies, a general evaluation of different cultures taught by new teacher Mr. Shaun Genres and Mr. Guy Amsler, In the 8 th grade students take a general overview of American History taught by Mr. Genres and Dr. Robert "Doc" Winfrey. After these two courses, students are ready for their Upper School history career. In the 9 th grade, students take a one-semester course of Ancient and Medieval History, taught by Mr. Patrick McCarroll. This required course gives students a good background for all other history classes. In the 10 th grade, students are given a choice of European History, taught by Mr. McCarroll, Dr. Harkins, and Doc Winfrey, or AP European History, a much more difficult course taught by department chair Dr. Harkins. In the 1 1 tb grade students are faced with a similar choice of AP American History taught by Mr. Eric Berman and the regular section taught by Upper School Principal Mr. Barry Ray and Mr. Amsler. In their senior year students have a wide range of History electi ves to choose from. Coach Jerry Peters offers AP and regular United States and Comparative Government to those students interested in the political sciences. Students more intrigued by the arts can choose between AP Art History with Mr. Berman and the new Humanities course, joint taught by Mr. Berman and Mr. Russell.

The Owl 85 Science The Science Department of MUS is one of the smallest at MUS, but it offers one of the most useful of all the curricula. Offering an important grounding in the fundamentals of several branches of science, the Sciences provide training in laboratory procedure, familiarity with equipment, and problem solving ability throughout the required two years of Lower School and two years of Upper School science classes. Students begin their scientific careers at MUS with the one-semester course Force, Motion, and Energy, which provides a sound understanding of the basic principles of, you guessed it, force, motion, and energy. Through experimentation, reading, and problem solving, students begin to learn the foundation of the sciences from Mr. Bill Matthews or Mr. Andy Saunders. Eighth Grade students study the basics of Earth Science, including mineral identification, weather patterns, and tectonic movements, from Mr. Saunders, Mr. Matthews, and Mr. Beck. Upon entering the Upper School, all freshmen are required to take Introductory Physical Science. This full year course taught by Mr. Beck, Mr. Matthews, and Mrs. Victoria Daniel, gives students a more advanced look at the basics of science then they were given in the Lower School. Students explore the atomic model of matter through many laboratory experiments. In the tenth grade, students make a choice of classes. Some students choose to take Chemistry, taught by Mrs. Daniel and Dr. Kilzer, a full-year course that explores the elements and the laws of nature through lab work. Others may choose to take Biology with Mr. Saunders or Mr. Bill Taylor. In their junior year some students choose to end their science career at MUS, but most continue on to either Biology or Chemistry, depending on what class they took as sophomores, or they may choose to move on to the Advanced Placement level of their science of choice. As seniors, students have a choice of regular or AP Physics, both taught by Mr. John Olson. In the regular section students study the basics of a college Physics course including mechanics, light and sound, electricity and magnetism, and modern physics. The AP course represents a full college-level course and contains more specific information than the regular section. Above: Jess Robinson and Sam Buckner explain mo- lecular genetics to one of their classmates.

W Re The aim of the MUS Religion program is to give students a firm* well-rounded background in the field. In the spirit of the school's mission to raise its boys in a strong ^Christian tradition," seventh graders take a course in Old Testament history, taught by Mr. Haguewood and Mr, Dent, This course concentrates on a careful, informed reading of selected portions of the Old Testament. Emphasis is given to the historical context of the stories and their development. Students are required to take a similar course in New Testament history during their freshman year. The life and teachings of Jesus, the ministry of Paul, and the development of early Christianity are the three main facets of this course. After establishing a firm foundation in the historical tradition of the Bible, pupils can expand their knowledge of Religion through the abundance of elective courses. Perhaps the most popular elective choice is Philosophy & Ethics, which offers an introduction to some of the major schools of philosophical thought, both classical and modern. Students focus on the study ol the philosophies themselves before discussing current values and problems. Another popular choice is Comparative Religion This course offers a survey of prehistoric and primitive religion that leads into the history of contemporary Eastern and Western religions. Finally there is Christian Theology, a course which emphasizes the important thinkers who have shaped Christian thought in the West. With such a wide range of courses a student can be sure that he will leave MUS with a well- rounded basis in religion that suits his personal needs.

Above and Left: Bible teacher and head lacrosse coach Mr. Dent discusses the intricate study of Old Testament authorship with his 7th grade classes. The Owl SQ Fine Arts As you enter the fine arts wing on a dreary Tuesday morning during seventh period, you can hear the loud bangs I clatters of hammers and the whir of saws, but above all of this noise you can hear Mr, Saunders telling the dedicated student the Theater Production class to work harder and get things done. The Fine Arts department of MUS has several classes offering a variety of different art to MUS students. Mr. John Hiltonsn heads the Fine Arts department and teaches several classes. Mr. Hiltonsmith leads the eighth grade choir first semester, teac music to the eighth grade second semester, instructs a music theory course for upperclassmen, and finally directs the internatioi award-winning a cappella group, Beg To Differ. Mr. Bowman, the visual arts teacher, also leads a variety of art courses. Art 7 is a one-semester course that serves as introduction to art for the younger student. He also teaches the Art I and Art II courses for upper school students to take betw their freshman and senior years. These classes dig a little deeper into the many elements of drawing and painting. Every year, art classes display their work in the Fine Arts Wing for all students to admire. Woodworking is a popular class among MUS students. Taught by Mr. Schmitt and alumnus Richard Cowan, woodwork is offered to both juniors and seniors. Each student must create a piece which shows that he has mastered the skills taught in class. When Mr. Schmitt' s students are asked, "do you take wood?" the answer is usually an emphatic yes. Mr. Schmitt also teaches a photography class to seniors. Each student must provide his own 35mm SLR camera i supplies, so that he can shoot and develop his own film, as well as create prints. Students explore such elements of photography line, shape, color, and contrast as they work to compile a portfolio showing their artistic progress. Finally, for those students who aren't as hands-on in the arts, there are two classes offered as Fine Arts credits that sur history. Mr. Eric Herman offers APArt History, a survey of humankind's artistic expression in painting, sculpture, and architect from the cave paintings of the Stone Age to the abstract compositions of the post- modern era. Mr. Russell and Mr. Berman joint-teach a humanities course, which analyzes literature and philosophy in addition to artistic developments. The Fine Arts department is an essential part of. the MUS liberal arts education which challenges students to work beyond the typical High School curriculum. Above: Saturday morning finds theater production student Jeffrey Posson in the workshop working off his class cuts. Above: All MUS seventh graders are required to take an art clas< which they learn the basics of sketching, painting, and wire scu ture. 90 Memphis University School Left: Mr Schmitt outlines a new wood carving project to Collins Roll, Jamie Drinan, and Alan Humphreys.

The Ow 91 Co-Edge Walking down the hall, a strange perfume piques your curiosity. Could it be a . . . girl? The wall of students parts, and you see a group of Hutchison girls gracefully striding down the corridor. What overwhelming force could break the forces of gender segregation? Only one courageous program could "dare to disturb the universe", Co-Edge. The dawning of the age Co-Edge has enabled seniors, a few juniors, and one or two sophomores to take classes at our sister school of Hutchison and vice-versa. Quoting the Co-Edge website, "Typically, MUS students take advantage of the Fine Arts courses at Hutchison, while Hutchison students generally participate in MUS Social Studies classes. However, students may take courses in other areas with the approval of the program' s coordinators." A team-taught International Issues Seminar by Mr. Eric Berman and Dr. Paula Barnes carries the Co-Edge brunt. This class alternates between the MUS and Hutchison campus. International Issues addresses many of the current, world issues that affect us every day even if they do not make the headlines every morning. The class also brings guest lecturers to shed some light on topics that they have studied thoroughly. The jointly taught International Issues class is the first of its kind, but for many years Hutchison students have come to MUS for Mr. Peter's AP American and Comparative Government, Mr. Olson's AP Physics, Mr. Smythe's Christian Theology, Mr. Koehn's Psychology, and various others. Though Co-Edge is met with opposition from both sides, the majority of students agree with our Headmaster, Mr. Haguewood, when he said, "I believe that to develop well-rounded students, we must offer the opportunity to have an academic experience with members of the opposite sex, an experience which will allow them to appreciate one another as academic equals and which allows them to interact on an intellectual level." Above: Liviri on the Co-Edge, Mary Beth Buchignani, Randall Hoi comb, and a somnolent Houston Hagewood study International Issues, jointly taught by our own Mr. Berman, and Dr. Paula Barnes from the school across the way. 92 Memphis University School Right: Mary Kyle opted to take Spanish III here at MUS instead of at Hutchison. PE Ah, RE. Does any other class evoke such fond memories as Physical Education? Be it the pure joy of tackling some freshman in knee-football or the pain and suffering the Physical Fitness test causes, every day of gym class offers a new, unique experience. MUS has quite an impressive athletic facility. With lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and 2 football fields, a recently redone track, two gymnasiums, numerous locker rooms, and a well-equipped weight room, students at MUS are offered many opportunities to increase their physical ability. However, the ultimate method to becoming more physically fit is to take RE. All Lower Schoolers are required to take RE. in both 7 th and 8 th grade. Coaches Tommy Harrison, Matt Bakke (also the Department Head), and Phillip Massey keep these youngsters in line while introducing them to the realm of gym class. After each rigorous quarter of running ins and outs and cross-countries and struggling to bench the bar, all students take the Physical Fitness test, which determines about 40% of their grade. Additional exercise is gained in the forms of knee-football, RE. basketball (a different sport entirely from real basketball), and moving heavy things for the Athletic Department. Upon entering the Upper School, those students not participating in or managing a school sport move up to the Varsity level of RE. Coach Orlando "the O-Show" McKay's rallying cries of "Get stout!" and Coach Bubba Burr's sheer intimidation help their students to make excellent scores on the Physical Fitness test, the same one that the Lower Schoolers take. Varsity RE. follows the same curriculum as Lower School RE., but with more basketball and a more odiferous locker room. Coach David Ferebee is the school's athletic trainer. He makes sure that all participants in Varsity RE. and the lesser sports (football, basketball, etc.) stay healthy and return to the playing field as soon as possible. Above: Jayshal Patel leads the pack of Varsity PE. The Ow 93 Forei One of the man} skills the MUS studenl is pri\ ileged to learn is the ability to speak, read. 01 foreign languages. Whether declining piiella or conjugating manger, students are bombarded with a fusillade of grammar drills and pronunciation exercises in order to become proficient enough in their language to not acciden- tally say "The sausage devoured the girl." Language study begins with required Latin I in the eighth grade under the tutelage of Mr. Ellis and Mr. Duff. For those w ho decide to leave the study ol Latin. Dr. Dalle offers French to those of a more Parisian persuasion. Students hone their French grammar and enrich their vocabulary through extensive use of the French In .Action video series starring Valerie Allain as Mireille Belleau. Students who leave Latin may also choose to studs Spanish, and a large majority does. Spanish is taught by the superb team of Mrs Molly Burr. Mr. Vincent Mutzi, and Mrs. Beba Heros. If you ask them, onh the best students continue in the study of Latin, stud) ing Caesar's De Bella Gallico with Mr. Duff in Latin II, Cicero's First Oration against Catiline with Mr. Duff in Latin 111. The sell-styled finest ot Classical scholars continue to AP Latin IV with Mr. Lllis for a study of Vergil's Aeneid. Although it is hard to imagine why. some Latin students do continue after the AP to Latin V for an elective study of Latin lyric poets Above: Mrs. Burr hands back the lat- est Spanish III quiz.

The Owl 95 En One of the most important skills used In the real world has to be the use of our native tongue. Knowledge of English grammar, vocabulary, composition, and even culture or legend are important in today's society. We become more well-rounded and educated when we understand the literature and language that creates the background for our world. Proficiency in the English language helps other important skills surface, and the MUS English Department certainly helps its students develop them. In the seventh grade, the English classes consist mainly of creating a strong foundation in basic grammar, vocabulary, and mythology. Mrs. Crippen and Mr. Torrey take on the task of teaching the seventh graders the basics. As z eigth grader, one continues to explore the English language and reads more traditional English literature, while Mr. Shclton Mr. Russell, Mr. Torrey, and Mrs. Crosby employ creative techniques to further students' knowledge. Dr. Gross, Mr. Eikner, and Mr. Thompson teach the freshmen to improve their writing skills, use proper grammar, and understand literature. In the tenth grade, the curriculum focuses on the greatest works of American literature. Mr. Askew, Mrs. Crosby, Dr. Baer, and Mrs, MeCarroU teach the themes of literature that define American culture. As juniors, students have a choic of English classes. For the first semester, eleventh graders may take either Junior English Review, taught by Dr. Gross, Mr Askew, and Mr. Russell , or AP English 1 1 , taught by Mr. Shelton, For the second semester, juniors may either take British Literature with Mr. Eikner or continue with AP English, First-semester seniors take AP English with Mr. Thompson or British Literature II with Mrs. McCarroll, Mr. Eikner, or Mr. Thompson. Seniors have a wide variety of English elect! ves t choose from for their second semester: Arthurian Tradition with Mrs. Crippen, Dramatic Literature with Dr. Gross. Shakespeare with Mr. Russell or Mr. Thompson, and Southern Renaissance Literature with Mr. Askew.

"The death of Leigh MacQueen is a great loss for all of us who love the school and its mission. Though officially retired since 1998, he served as our archivist (who better to meticulously organize and catalogue the school's history?) and planned to lead a student group to France this summer to study the life of Napoleon as part of our MUS In Europe program. For almost forty years he was the quiet academic conscience of the school, submitting all that we did to one dispassionate test: would it make MUS a stronger academic institution?*' said Headmaster Ellis Haguewood. Leigh MacQueen was the embodiment of the ideals MUS students and faculty value, with his calm and quiet nature, his extensive but never patronizing knowledge, and his willingness to help whenever possible. How appropriate that Mr. MacQueen spent his last years at MUS as the school's archivist. Several days a week, he occupied a small room on the second floor of the Joseph R. Hyde, Jr. Library Learning Center where he catalogued and arranged the valuable mementos of MUS's more than 100~year history. The task was a perfect fit for the man who had been responsible for or experienced first-hand the most important school events since 1961. Miss Mary Nell Easum, now the school's Registrar, worked closely with Mr. MacQueen both before and after his official retirement. "He was a unique person — so talented in so many different areas with unending energy and enthusiasm," she said. "The early days were exciting with the growth of the school and the expansion of the curriculum. Leigh was never without a new idea. It was fortunate for MUS that Colonel Lynn, Mr. Thorn, and Mr. Haguewood saw his talents and let him use them." His career at MUS began simply. Former Headmaster Colonel Ross M. Lynn hired Mr, MacQueen to teach history and science classes and to direct the physical education program. Soon after, he was named History Department chairman and became increasingly involved with student activities and curriculum enhancement. He instituted the Advanced Placement program in 1963, took charge of graduation exercises, co-founded the Humanities course, began editing the school's catalog, inaugurated the student directory known as the UBook, and helped the Student Council rewrite their constitution so students could have a stronger voice in school governance. Mr. MacQueen was named academic dean in 1966 and founded the Academic Council in 1968, a group still actively involved in the curriculum planning of the school. He continued to serve as academic dean, as well as Upper School principal, and associate headmaster until May 1994 when he returned to his first love— teaching history. During his tenure, he designed the school seal and banner, several academic award medals, installed the now obsolete television studio, and designed the academic mace in honor of Headmaster Emeritus Gene Thorn. Mr. MacQueen was a fair and respected teacher. Alumni have been deeply saddened by the sudden loss of one of their favorite teachers. "I have so many rich memories of Mr. MacQueen. He taught me to study history and encouraged me as an actor, I am a better man for having studied with him. He possessed rare classroom genius— the ability to teach not only the subject matter, but also the love of studying it," said the Revered Frank Crumbaugh* 70, of Holy Innocents Church in Beach Haven, New Jersey. "The old boys whom he taught to think historically are reeling, struggling to face our own mortality signaled so vividly in the death of our beloved teacher." "We will miss him, but we salute his enduring legacy. He lives on in much of what we do and how we do it today; a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, strong Advanced Placement courses, and an unyielding commitment to building the very best faculty possible in a secondary school," said Haguewood. Beth Russell 86 Memphis University School The Owl 187 188 Memphis University School At the end of each school year, about thirty people are named to various editing and staff positions for the yearbook, and each year, a core group of about four seniors lead the effort, with a few underclassmen scurrying about, doing odd jobs to help finish the book. Though it is my name you see at the top of the masthead, though you see only me making announcements each Monday in chapel, you would not be holding a yearbook were it not for John Harkess, Hill Stoecklein, and, especially, Lee McNabb. These three have kept the book afloat these long months since we four sat down last August to plan the year, and, despite some unexpected difficulties, we all have had fun producing the book. The credit for this book goes to them. All errors, omissions, or lapses in judgement are, of course, mine. The job of the Editor-in-Chief is never an easy one, but this year, on top of all the usual responsibilities, I was faced with the task of redeeming the somewhat tarnished reputation of the yearbook to both the student body and the administration. In all honesty, I do not know whether the book you now hold will accomplish this task, but I hope that you appreciate this year's Owl You hold in your hand the fruit of many hours of labor, of countless Saturday morning work sessions and hurried post-graduation proofreadings.
